Breast lift (Mastopexy)

This young woman was dissatisfied with the drooping of her breasts.  I performed a mastopexy, or breast lift, in which the skin is tailored and the breast tissues lifted to create a more youthful shape.  Her stretched areola and been made smaller, and since there nipple and areola remain attached to the underlying breast tissue, sensation remains intact.  These three month photos show typical results.  Scars should continue to fade over the coming year.

Breast Lift (mastopexy), Flank Liposuction, and Abdominal Liposuction

This 30 year old woman was dissatisfied with the shape of her breasts after raising two children. Her breasts had maintained their volume, but dropped significantly since breastfeeding.  These 6 month photos show stable and shapely results after breast lift.

Breast Lift (Mastopexy) and Gel Augmentation

This 42 year old woman breastfed two children and has developed drooping and a volume loss of her breasts.  She desired a breast lift combined with gel breast augmentation to restore volume and give a better, more youthful shape.  She chose 300cc gel breast implants to give this new look.

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

This woman has had significant sagging of her breasts over time.  She came in requesting breast lift and a small reduction in volume.  I did this through a traditional anchor incision, which results in scars around the areola, a vertical scar, and a scar hidden under the breast.  She is ecstatic with the results.
